Sheep on a rabbit Mitt

Sometimes you have to put a sheep on your angora rabbit yarn.  This is my fingerless reknit.  I think the sheep is so much cuter than my original cable plan. I realize this should be a rabbit on angora yarn, BUT, it is a angora/wool blend. So that works right?   

Big big shocker: I blocked it last night.  The sheep was a bit wonky in the tummy.  I have never knit intarsia and I better learn now.  The floats in the back are crazy pants, but I doubt that’ll be giving this pair away.  

Today I can work on mitt number two .  SQUEALS.

  1. I love, love, love your sheepy mitts!! AND I love his little wonky tummy! I’ve never been able to get the floats on the back of intarsia to look smooth so if you figure it out please let me know. Great mitts Kathy!

  2. Love it!

    When I learned to knit with more than one color, my instructor told me that the floats needed to be loose – so not to pull on the yarn to tighten it. I do much better now, but still not perfect.

    Thanks for the Harry’s Hundred plug! 🙂
